Children Museum in Brussels

visiting the Musee des Enfants in Brussels by @onfoodandwine

Our monthly challenge continues and on a sunny Sunday we crossed town to go to Musée des Enfants – Children Museum in Brussels. This museum visit review will be a tale of two … posts. One, dedicated to the playground and another, to follow in a few years probably, on the actual museum. Why you ask?

When we arrived at the museum, toddler a bit on the edge, we were informed that whilst he might enjoy some of the activities, the overall museum is targeting children which are a bit older (3y and above). So at 8.50e per adult we decided to spend the afternoon in the playground instead.

Inspired by the Boston Children Museum, the Brussels Children Museum was started in 1976. The spirit of the museum is very much ‘children at the core’ – there are interactive exhibitions, story telling festivals, and everything in between. However more on that when we actually get to visit the museum for ourselves. For now I will focus on the playground which for a 2y old was great fun. Swings, toboggans, a sandpit, a few goats, and rocking horses. What more do you need? Lots of other Brussels expat parents seem to think the same – great secluded spot for children to enjoy an energetic afternoon.
